What is Foundations in Agricultural-Based Industries for Refugees and Migrants (FARM?)
Are you a new immigrant or refugee? Do you have experience or interest in gardening/agriculture? Join our new FARM program! We offer this program FREE of charge to new immigrants and refugees. Only 13 seats are available.
The FARM program has two parts:
- 8 weeks of in-class training, where you will learn skills to help you find a job in the agricultural industry. The FARM program offers English language training and practical hands-on lessons related to the industry, such as equipment handling, health and safety procedures, and production processes. You will also have the opportunity to go on field trips and listen to guest speakers.
- A paid practicum at one of our host companies, where you will gain work experience and make connections with employers. The practicum will be about 45 hours over 2-3 weeks. You must complete the in-class training to be eligible for the practicum.
